Say Cheese!

Capture those cute baby smiles while you can. But, we are sure you have now realized that taking pictures of your precious little one can be very challenging. I know that my 8-month-old is so easily distracted when I am taking his picture. Oh, what are we to do? He will not look at the camera long enough to get those cute, sparkling eyes. Well, problem solved!

Get perfect pictures of your baby with ShutterBuddy. With a black and white checker patterned – known to draw Baby’s attention easily – and a red outline, the ShutterBuddy is an inventive way to capture your baby’s attention while you are taking his picture. It slides over the lens and straps to most small digital point and shoot cameras – just make sure you don’t cover the flash.


Our little guy was mesmerized by the black and white pattern – as are most babies. It is said that black and white patterns stimulate a baby’s brain. So, you get something else out of this, too, aside from capturing the perfect snap shots of your precious little one.

The only thing, it doesn’t fit a digital SLR (DSLR) camera. The opening is only big enough for a small lens to fit through. So, personally, I would like to see a bigger version of this. Many parents are going for the bigger cameras these days. I know I love my DSLR and would love to use this with it instead of my little point and shoot camera.
